This weekend saw a horrifying display of outright racism and pro-Nazi public support during rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia. If you logged onto Twitter at all during the events and following, it's likely what dominated your feed.

Tech companies seem increasingly to be using their terms of service to shut down those who would use their platform for hate.
